Full description
Experience a private driving tour of Philadelphia’s highlights, and end the tour with a visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Your tour begins with an easy hotel pickup in a private vehicle. Enjoy an easy drop-off at the first site, where your guide will take you on a poignant journey around the historic sites of the American Revolution. Learn how the seeds of independence took root long before a musket shot was fired. As you walk around the homes of Benjamin Franklin and Betsy Ross, your guide will color in the missing details of life in Philadelphia during the period. Hear about the political climate of the time and the tension and excitement around the city. From there, continue onto JFK Plaza, where you can see one of the city’s most Instagrammable and recognizable sculptures: The LOVE statue. Hear why the replica of Indiana’s statue was erected in Philadelphia, and learn about life as a local from your guide as you drive around the city. Then drive up the wide lanes of Benjamin Franklin Parkway, a street whose numerous sites could fill up a day on its own. See Rodin’s "The Thinker" and numerous other public sculptures outside the Rodin Museum before descending the 72 steps to the top of the "Rocky Stairs." From the summit, enjoy sweeping vistas across Eakins Oval, Philadelphia City Hall, and Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
